Last week, several good character traits were brought to light during an Opportunity Elementary all-school assembly. Andy Olson, the head coach of Spokane’s arena football league (the Spokane Shock) and defensive lineman Jonathan Williams spoke to students about the importance of Respect, Responsibility and Diligence. They also honored the hard work and perseverance of our teachers.
Partners for Advancing Character Education (PACE), which put on the assembly, thanked the Spokane Valley Walmart for their Generosity in donating ten $100 gift cards for teachers to purchase classroom supplies. Members of the Spokane Shock participated in the drawing to give out the cards to 10 lucky and deserving teachers.
PACE is a community group of educators, parents, businesspeople, and faith-based organizations which works together with kids to recognize and promote good character. The BBB Serving Eastern Washington, North Idaho, and Montana is a PACE founding member.
